IndianaRed (4396) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Bottle Batch 57 Pours a very dark reddish brown with a modest lt tan head that only lasted a minute. Not much real lacing as the bubbles are large which doesnt make good lacing typcally. Aroma is nice and full and complex. Similar to a porter or stout. Brown sugar, smokey, molassas and the high ABV is up front. Taste is different than anything Ive had before. Burnt coffee, carmelized sugar, smokey. The high carbonation gets in the way a bit. Quite dark and heavy. Complex. Lively. The high ABV is definately there. First "traditional Ale". If this is typical, I like the full flavor. Feel is rich heavy. and the trailer is a bit of hops bitter. Good stuff and unique.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2004
UPDATED: APR 14, 2005 Deep brown color and its almost black. Not much head on this so its a menacing appearance. Flavor is a srong kick in the mouth, but very pleasurable. It is sweet with candy sugars, dark fruit, lots of dark fruit. Its also very hearty, very earthy, chocolatey and smooth. There is a strong wood flavor with the sweetness that bridges the strong maltyness.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2004 Hair of the dog adam Batch 56 Pours a dark brown with a huge tan head. thick lace aroma was very complex, fruity at first (berries) then smoky, malty, chocolaty , port, prunes, alchohol wisp at the end. flavor was complex as well. roasty, coffee, plum, prune , woody, caramel ,with just the right amount of grapefruit bitterness to balance it out. Finish was long and slightly bitter. note of alcohol on the throat. Enjoyed this with my favorite everyday cigar, a Padron 4000 Maduro and they complemented each other very nicely. Wow.

batch 41...deep brown, almost black. head is a few large bubbles around the edge. aroma is woody as hell, maybe a little alcohol..but not much else. flavor is slightly fruity, a hell of a lot woody, decent hoppiness, and some roastiness. the aroma hurts this beer a lot.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2004 Batch 48. Pours a massive, frothy, non-dissipating, brown head and the darkest of brown bodies. Highly carbonated. Nose of a barleywine, porter, stout mix. Porter texture (oily and gritty) with plums, cocoa powder and whiskey flavours. High ABV detected. Excellent and peculiar in every way. Strong, wild hop finish.

Batch 58, 12 oz bottle. Dark ruby red colour with a thick creamy tan head that lasts all the way to the bottom of my glass leaving sticky lace all around it. Initial aroma is quite smokey, with sweet cookie dough and toffee malt character with notes of licorice, soy sauce, leather, and oak also displayed. As it warms a bit of sweet chocolate comes out in the nose as well. The first taste leaves an explosion of flavour behind and Im having a hard time picking out all of the characteristics. Sweet and vineous, with some port/sherry qualities. Soy sauce and licorice are also present in the flavour along with a light smokey quality. There are also sweet dark fruits in the finish before you are led into a faint hoppy bitterness. Leaves a fairly pronounced acetic/lactic quality on the palate as well. This is definitely a strange, but tasty, world-class brew.

guzzler67 (1693) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 18, 2004
Dark, reddish brown appearance with an immense, tan head that never evaporated. The aroma was enticing; from the roasted chocolate malts, the dark fruits and spices to the smoky, woody nuances. The full-bodied flavor was equally complex. In addition to the qualities noted in the aroma, there were also notes of leather, toffee, and a good alcohol warmth. Hops were well represented and added a nice accent rather than overwhelm. Slightly bitter, slightly acidic, long lasting finish.

Batch 58. Thick foamy oatmeal head with deep dark brown body. Banana bread and plum nose. Lively carbonation hits the tongue at first sip with a tart bitterness enveloping every taste bud. Smokey sour flavor reminiscent of cognac. Basically an assault of flavor with smoke winning out in the end. Certainly a unique beer.

This beer will knock you on your A**. Not from the alcohol, but just the sheer volume of FLAVOR. Double bastard claims that one of their beers has more flavor than all the wussy beers made in one year combined. Well if thats the case, one of these beers has all the flavor of all the double bastards in a year combined. It looks so innocent but gud Lawwwwddddd.
